If another one of The Beatles dies, part of my world will die with them. Long live George, Paul & John. RIP Ringo.
When Joan Jett died I was quite sad. My older sister loved her a lot when we were younger. Joan was a junkie for a long time. She survived longer than most. My sister had her struggles with that too. So I guess it just made me sad. I don't like her music that much, but I remember it booming up from the basement.
I remember when we lost Donna Murphy. I cried. She was a great Broadway star who deserved much greater recognition. That kind of cancer is so insidious. RIP Donna.

I was bereft when Joan Rivers died. The emotion took me by complete surprise. I always loved her but I wasn’t a fanatic. Just thought she was very funny and clever.
She died almost a year to the day of my mom. Took me a while to realize it was really about mourning my mom. She was a lot like Joan—fancy, smart, funny, fashion-focused, highly critical. No plastic surgery, though.
Since realizing that, when I miss my mom I often tune into a Joan Rivers interview on YouTube. Makes me feel better.

R155 It’s because of what their deaths represent. For me, I wasn’t alive during “Beatlemania” but I am a huge fan of the Beatles and their solo work. When Paul McCartney dies, it will mark the end of a certain period of time. For those who lived through the entire career of the Beatles, it would likely be even more poignant. And of course it’s a reminder of our own imminent demise.
Practically speaking, it also means the end of the creative output of that person. John Lennon was killed at age 40. Anyone living back then who was a fan of his music had to come to terms with the fact that there would be no new Lennon music.

I was sad when Barbara died, but more for her legacy than her humorless and self aggrandizing personality. They didn't even do more than a 15 minute segment on The View. ABC is planning a special retrospective to air in September. Barbara did get a great fantastic send off when she retired. It's not sad that she died during the pandemic. Her daughter and Walters were estranged and few would attend a grand service. Barbara Walters was toilet trained socially - but not many really liked her. Judgy Judy and Cindy Adams. Even Joan Rivers only tolerated her, though she attended her dinner parties.
My mom always calls Barbara Walters a spider woman. She was kind of creepy. An accomplished life she had, but it wasn't a big deal when she died. Everyone remembers she sided with Trump in his feud with Rosie. And Roy Cohn. Good Riddance Barbara.

When Heath Ledger died, I was terribly upset and sad. A friend said he just didn't understand that since I personally didn't know Heath. I said I was sad because of the great enjoyment I got out of Heath's performances plus the fact that he was so young and had such a great future ahead of him. As gay as it sounds, I will be terribly and deeply sad when Barbra Streisand passes. That voice had given me so much joy. I'll also miss Liza very much. I watched these two on TV starting back in the early 60s and I feel like I've grown up with them. My respect and love of their performances know no bounds. When people say that others are stupid for mourning the loss of a famous person, they really are sort of clueless as to the reasons behind it.

He looked like an old basset hound but was charming to my mom and me. We talked for a good ten minutes. All very surface comments on both sides, he didn't look well. He ate dinner there often. He was alone that night in 2016, but we saw him again a few years later with Elke Somers. They laughed it up. My mom was kind of sad I think. When did he die? It would have been recently - he must have been close to 90. She'll be sad. Mom is 71 now herself. Dean Martin gave her a lot of pleasure.

There are people who seem like they’ll always be there and like the space that they occupy cannot be filled by another human being..they’re irreplaceable. Oprah never had children because in some way, the people that tuned into her everyday were her children.
She represents success at such a high level just the fact that she supposedly did that show every damn day for 25 years without a sick day is remarkable. She really does represent making it from nothing and excellence. She’s from that generation where if you were a woman and black, and you made it, you held onto that success and guarded it like forever!

I think Mel’s going for the actual 2,000 year old man title.

R331 When Ms Dey dies, I will be deliberate in my choice to not comment.

R324 "Kate Jackson, especially if she doesn't get herself together first. I'll probably have to start talking about her all weekend rather than just Fridays." Absolutely!

I'll feel weird when Queen Elizabeth dies. She's been this presence my whole life, even though I'm American. I can't think of a movie star or music star I really feel so connected to that I'll be truly sad when they die. It might be weird to live in a world without Bruce Springsteen, maybe just because Born to Run was the first record I bought, but I don't think it's anything like the fact that Queen Elizabeth has been a world figure my entire life.

I'm afraid to list mine, since at least two of the people listed in this thread have recently passed.

[quote] I wonder what Tori gets in the will when Candi kicks the bucket.
The funeral bill.

^ True. Candi was a gold digger but she disapproves of male gold diggers like Dean.
